This work aims to be the most authoritative guide to library development and to provide all branches of the book and library world with reliable, accurate and useful information for their everyday work. On the basis of a worldwide questionnaire mailing, this tenth edition provides details of nearly 40,000 libraries from 167 countries. It covers national, state, regional and central university libraries as well as public, college and other academic libraries. Each entry includes the library name, address, contact details, details of special collections, statistics and other data. Entries are for special libraries with more than 5000 volumes, though some Third World countries are not limited by these restrictions. It is designed for public libraries, library suppliers, booksellers and wholesalers. All Saur reference works are splendid, & this is no exception…a veritable tour de force of information gathering.”–WORLD AFFAIRS REPORT. Incorporating virtually every type of special library–from university medical libraries to independent archives focusing on a single discipline, such as music or art–the third edition of this directory categorizes over 35,000 libraries in 183 countries under 750 subject headings. Since libraries may appear under multiple subjects, the main section contains over 47,000 entries. Listings are arranged by subject, then alphabetically by country, & then by library. Additionally, the INDEX TO LIBRARIES in Volume 2 cumulates all libraries world-wide in a single alphabetical sequence with references to the main entry number.
